Got a new way of doing something? Or maybe an old method that needs some clarification.

how to embed youtube video in posts ?

Post by Valben » Tue May 12, 2020 9:35 am

Hi all,
Anyone knows how to embed a youtube video box in a post ?
I mean not only the link but the video itself, like this post from Robbie O-Brien : viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3028

Thanks for help

Hi Martin, any hint from your side? I have spent some time trying but can only get the link in the post but not the embedded box :-) thanks VB

Okay.

1. Select the share option under the clip in Youtube. This will be a URL link looking like this https://youtu.be/JBM5r5WnPOs
2. In your post go up to row of buttons at top of window and select "youtube" button at far right. This will insert the two square bracketed codes into your post.
3. Paste the URL link from step 1 in between the square bracketed control codes and then edit out everything from the Youtube URL except the letter/number string at right end of the link. For the link above you should end up with "[****]JBM5r5WnPOs[****]". Note Ive inserted asterisks into the square brackets so you can actually see the string.

This should work. let me know if it doesn't.
